No automatic alt text available.
And of course I had to use some of my favorite subjects - my twin nephews Cannon & Deacon.
These pics are from their first year of school/kindergarten - they were so blessed with a fabulous teacher in Mrs. Clayton!!  School days caused lots of tears but Mrs. Clayton really helped them blossom and get ready for 1st grade.

Let's Scrap - 2 reveals!!





Well apparently you get to see not just one but TWO sketches and layouts in this post because my 1st of the month never posted - but I will start with the 15th sketch, which is a throwback from a few years ago, but still a great sketch!!!  Be sure to check out Let's Scrap this month for some great scrappy inspiration!!

I love this sketch because it is so very versatile, there are so many ways to change this up and make it work however you need it too!!  I used baseballs in place of the hexagons but plan on doing another layout with the hexagons cause it is a great way to use up scraps of paper!!

And just in case you missed this on the Let's Scrap blog on the first, that somehow never posted for me

and here is my take, I couldn't make the pockets work out for the pictures I had but thought this still turned out really cute!!

Sketches in Thyme #309

So here we are over halfway thru January!!!  I trust everyone had a fabulous holiday season and is now ready to start scrapping all those pictures ;)

Sketches in Thyme has new sketches every week to help you get those pictures scrapped and this weeks is fun one because there are so many techniques that could be used with this sketch!!  Paint, mists, bling the options are endless!!


Living here in Alabama, it is really rare for us to get snow, especially in December, but this year did not disappoint as we got about 5" and it was fun, fluffy snow that didn't cause road issues or power problems but gave everybody a snow day!!


I pulled this great paper by Little Yellow Bicycle (it had been hiding in my stash) and knew it would be perfect for our snow day picture!!

Let's Scrap Jan. 15th Sketch



Happy New Years to everyone!!  Here were are already at the middle of January with a great sketch at LET'S SCRAP to start off your scrappy year!!


How cute are my nephews in their K-5 graduation outfits??  While the school year started off a little rough, I can't say enough about how well they did adjusting to the routine of school, but they were glad that summer vacation finally came around!
